Tears in the desert don't refresh even on hot days! The foot fetishists are happy, though!
Hello, snooping packs! Welcome to a new scent commentary from me. As you have surely already felt, the summer has returned again. And he doesn't politely step in to warm us up slowly and gently, no, he rather kicks the door brutally like an ox, as he did a few weeks ago during the first heat wave, and he heats us up properly with it (how rude...). Some may like that, but the too much heat just bothers me, so I just can't stand such murderously hot days and less and less like the summer because of it, myself, and that will surprise you now, if I should see pretty legs without end everywhere in summer, which could bring me to completely different thoughts... and yet... I promise you high and holy, that if I ever have a girlfriend, I will be a little more decent (honestly!) than to have dirty thoughts all the time and to complain about the summer! Anyway, maybe... :D

In my defense I have to mention, however, that you others (at least the guys among you) also like to look after your legs, he he. And the fact that most of the girls also latch on without stockings and in open shoes, you're especially happy, because statistically most of you (guys) have a light, or even intense foot fetish, which especially flares up in summer :DD Ha! Got him, didn't you? Yeah, now you can turn red, mu ha ha ha ha :D

And since I say summer, I come back to the scent. The hot summer actually reminds me as if I had been left behind in the desert (no wonder, Sahara heat too!) and where I cry after colder places. Which brings me to the name of the fragrance: Larmes du Désert,... Tears of the Desert!

The fragrance:
I smell intense incense right at the beginning, mixed with beautiful and gentle benzoin. Smells of pine trees are quickly added. These beautiful, woody scents are not really pines here, but at least something similar, namely cypresses, which also have a wonderful scent, as I said, and like the pines belong to the coniferous plants, the conifers. Thus the smell is also woody, under which one can smell also well cedars and above all Guajakholz out.
A slight sweetness of amber soon appears, in perfect harmony with the softer scents of the fragrance and benzoin.
The fragrance then smells for quite a while until it gradually departs from its sweet and gentle fragrances in the base and becomes more and more woody and earthy. It would have been nicer if benzoin and incense would have lasted longer, but you can spray the scent on if it should seem a little more irrelevant later. In any case, the fragrance is beautiful anyway.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is above average. You don't have to get very close to him to sniff him out. The shelf life is thus eight hours, after which it becomes weaker and weaker and more meaningless.

The bottle:
The bottle is slightly rounded and bulbous and its yellow colour makes it look simply beautiful. In the middle of the bottle there is a small black label from which lines lead to the edges of the bottle. These represent sunbeams, which is a very nice idea, I think, because they give the bottle a great look.

Wow... what a lovely fragrance. It smells wonderfully beautiful of woody, but also soft, resinous notes, which of course also seem very fitting to the woody scents! But since he has this cypress scent, I don't think it fits somehow thematically to a desert. It smells more like a wonderful, Mediterranean holiday (oh, you should be in such places now!...), where you go next to the sea to look at the landscape, where you walk in beautiful places with a lot of nature or fields and meadows, where you can enjoy the sun, hear crickets chirping (and thereupon hope that in the holiday accommodation no insects have penetrated, he he) and just happy. Even though I have to think of all this, olfactorically the fragrance has become more of a fragrance for autumn than for summer, which you could still use well in spring if it doesn't get too warm.

It is a beautiful scent for leisure time, but also for the evening, even if it should not be suitable for party-like festive occasions. I would definitely recommend a test here! With this I have arrived once again at the end and wish you all a nice evening :)

And as for you foot fetishists: Don't worry, scientifically a man normally can't help it, because normally in the brain the regions for the genitals and the feet are so close to each other that both regions seem to overlap slightly, so you find feet erotic. And the fact that small, female female feet are supposed to signal a particularly fertile lady with a high oestrogen level to us guys, should be set thereby (unconsciously!!!!) also still the reproduction instinct in motion! Therefore it is only mostly guys affected by this fetish and start to drool ... while women find such a thing mostly to laugh to death :D ... Yes ... we men are just weak and weak-minded, so have some indulgence! DDD

Wine smoke
"Larmes du Desert," the tears of the desert. That fits. Atelier des Ors has succeeded here in creating a pleasant, almost unspectacularly secluded frankincense flatterer that lays itself thinly over the skin, seduces, soothes and exotically evokes thoughts of pyramids, Bedouin villages and warm desert sand.

"Larmes du Desert" really reminds me of the desert milestones of Tauer, I can only agree with some of the previous speakers. The theme seems to smell the same in the minds of perfumers. Only it is interpreted somewhat flatter and more uncomplicated here. More wearable say friends, more boring say enemies. The truth is somewhere in between. It's a cute incense burner, no big fuss. Very linear, very tasty, very chaste. But it doesn't smoke. Patchouli will take over with time. Citric notes are not often put into the base. Since you don't notice anything of them here, you know again why. The presentation of Atelier des Ors probably doesn't match any of their scents better than this maharajah season ticket.

Flacon: golden beauty
Sillage: more discreet than you think. Quiet, almost. Cuddle in Sahara sand.
Shelf life: 8 hours the mouth

Conclusion: a golden desert breath of tears and longings. You've smelled something like that before. But it is still a high-quality dream from 1000 and one night

Smooth Incense
Thanks to a blogger friend, I was able to test a few Atelier des Ors offerings(thank you!). Here are my thoughts on Larmes du Désert:

As its name indicates, Larmes du Désert is all about resins. Olibanum, myrrh, labdanum and benzoin all make an appearance, but most of the time, they're seamlessly interwoven into each other and merely show a certain facet from time to time.

The fragrance opens with the bracingly cool and stony smoke of olibanum, flankered by the musty sizzles of myrrh and the aromatic woody freshness of cypress. However, Larmes du Désert does not feel as aloof or austere as Avignon or L'Eau Trois for example. Because there is this mild balsamic and fleshly warmth of labdanum and cinnamon-tinged benzoin that soften the overall harshness of incense. There is also a discreet plum-like sweetness lurking in the background, although I don't know where it stems from. As a result, Larmes du Désert is like a fantasy painting of desert, where one can admire the tawny landscape but doesn't have to endure the hardship of an actual desert.

Like most Atelier des Ors perfumes, Larmes du Désert is largely linear during its 10-hour longevity, although the sillage is rather soft except for the moderately projecting first hour.

While I personally prefer an incense fragrance with a more stark constrast between its coldness and warmth, Larmes du Désert is nontheless very enjoyable and solid. Its strength actually comes from the unification of the cold incense and warm amber and its smooth execution. If you happen to be looking for an elegant and verstaile incense fragrance, Larmes du Désert might well worth a try.

Fine incense in which the woody note briefly becomes papery, but is soon loosened and balanced out by citric notes.+3
